Background of the assignment:
The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) is the guardian of the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime (UNTOC), the main international instrument in the fight against transnational organized crime. The Convention is further supplemented by three Protocols which target specific areas and manifestations of organized crime: the Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons, Especially Women and Children; the Protocol against the Smuggling of Migrants by Land, Sea and Air; and the Protocol against the Illicit Manufacturing of and Trafficking in Firearms, their Parts and Components and Ammunition. Its purpose is to promote cooperation to prevent and combat transnational organized crime more effectively. The UNODC is also the guardian of the United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC) which covers five main areas: preventive measures, criminalization and law enforcement, international cooperation, asset recovery, and technical assistance and information exchange.
Through the GLOU68 programme, UNODC specifically works to facilitate meaningful participation of relevant stakeholders in the UNTOC Review process. Over the past years, UNODC has engaged with CSOs in the sessions of the Commission on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice (CCPCJ), the United Nations Crime Congress and the Conference of the Parties to UNTOC (CoP UNTOC), developing a network of some 500 CSOs working on issues related to crime prevention.
To ensure regional engagement with relevant stakeholders in the implementation of UNTOC, the UNODC Civil Society Unit (CSU) together with UNODC’s country and regional office in Southern Africa, is implementing the project Building the capacity of civil society to engage in the UNTOC, its review mechanism and related activities. The Project’s main objective is to allow UNODC to prepare NGOs, private sector, and academia to support Member States in a successful implementation of the UNTOC Review Mechanism and to facilitate their broad and inclusive participation in the review process in accordance with Resolution 9/1, including “constructive dialogues”.
To implement the project, the UNODC CSU works closely with other substantive offices, mainly the Organized Crime Branch (OCB) in the Division for Treaty Affairs (DTA) and engages with relevant umbrella NGOs such as the NGO Alliance on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice (NGO Alliance), the UNCAC Coalition and the Global Initiative against Transnational Organized Crime (GI). The NPO will be embedded within a UNODC Country/Regional office, working in close collaboration to support the Organizations’ country and regional civil society stakeholder engagement.
As part of the project, a training toolkit has been developed for dedicated SE4U trainings which took place in 2020 online, covering 69 countries from Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Americas. The aim of the ongoing trainings and workshops is to prepare NGOs, academia, and the private sector for the implementation of the UNTOC review mechanism, including a strategic component on how they can constructively work with Member States. In 2021, a self-paced online version of this course was launched. Additionally, more trainings are being conducted on Stakeholder Engagement in the Self-Assessment Questionnaire of the Review Mechanism of the UNTOC, engaging Civil Society from around the world. An online knowledge hub – WhatsOn – for NGOs, private sector and academics working on countering organized crime has been developed as a platform for these stakeholders to exchange and share counter-organized crime knowledge.
